    This is a fundraiser set up to help purchase a modified wheelchair van for two children, Luke & Freyja, who are in wheelchairs full time.
    "Luke & Freyja have a rare Epilepsy condition called Migratory Partial Epilepsy of Infancy (MPEI). Since the age of 3-4 months both Luke & Freyja began to have seizures & by the age of 6 months they were having over 100 seizures a day. Months were spent in hospital trying to gain control over the seizures. By the age of 3 years Lukes seizures were finally under control but the damage had been done as he acquired severe brain damage leaving him at the developmental age of 4 months.
    Freyja to this day is still having up to and over 20+ seizures a day. Freyja has also acquired severe brain damage but she appears to be progressing slightly.

    Funds raised from this ride will go towards purchasing a vehicle suitable to be modified for two wheelchairs. Oz Rods Hot Rods & Street Machine Specialists have offered to modify the vehicle to pass regulations, all painting and modifications are being donated.
    $20 per rider, $10 per pillion, under 18 FREE. Cars $20 per vehicle to register, all money raised is going towards purchasing and converting the van to be wheelchair friendly. After a nice country ride, stopping at Rathdowney Pub then on to lunch at the Mt Alford Pub. Raffles will be available on the day."

    Link to the Event I've listed elsewhere: http://thmcec.org.au/ai1ec_event/pimp-luke-and-freyjas-charity-fundraising-ride/?instance_id=7987 There will be donation info there if you can't attend and would like to donate.

    The Facebook Event link is: https://www.facebook.com/events/1384547641805714/1405862196340925/ That should contain more up to date info. Already many raffle prizes have been donated.

    Note that this isn't solely a Bike Ride. Their will also be cars and a number of Hot Rods. Should make it interesting.
    Time is a bit out in the date picker used here. So check the links above.
